Understanding Odometer Readings
MARYLAND -- I read an article on here about a someone stating that they bought a vehicle and it has odometer fraud cause of a Inspection Sticker.
This is not how it works. First off it is very possible the vehicle had more miles on it at one time in the past. If the odometer had to be replaced due to malfunction, than the new odometer or new, used odometer would read 0 or what was on the replacement odometer. The inspection station that inspects the truck can ONLY WRITE WHAT'S ON THE ODOMETER AT TIME OF SALE. THE DEALER CAN ONLY ADVERTISE WHAT THE ODOMETER STATES. When the truck is sold the paperwork that the dealership fills out and asks you to sign will have the information concerning the odometer and it TRUE MILES UNKNOWN. When it comes down to it you should always ask for a History Report on a vehicle and always READ YOUR PAPERWORK.
